What is a Disciple?
An Intentional Discipleship Process
Our Discipleship Process flows throughout everything we do at Grace. It’s our hope that disciples at Grace will grow in their love of God, grow in their love for others and grow as disciples who make disciples.
God calls us to authenticity. When God’s people cease to respond to God’s call to authenticity, the church turns into a social club. In fact, many followers of Christ today have given up on the Christian church because of the lack of authenticity.
bottom line is that if love, first shown to us, is not the foundation on which: we speak, we gain understanding ,we do charity, we do sacrifices, the end result is null in the eyes of God.
"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, ... He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”.
Jesus gives us the best definition of what a disciple is. In Matthew 4:19 he says, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” This is a simple yet profound explanation.
First Jesus says “Follow me”. These are words of invitation. A disciple of Jesus must follow Jesus. It’s simple, Jesus leads and we follow. We recognize and accept who Jesus is as our Lord, leader, and master of our lives. He is our guide and we respond to His leadership and direction in all we do.
